We went to Nancy Hands three times during our stay. The staff were welcoming and accomodating. The food was good, and offered a decent variety.

My sister had mentioned being here before and really enjoying it. So a voucher on living social came up for €45 for €90 worth of food and I have to say I think they are doing themselves out of pocket with it. So the four of us went and we got one starter, four mains, two desserts, three irish coffees,... More

Me and my family stayed in the Ashling hotel and after a little walk ended up in Nancy Hands for dinner and some drinks. The food was absolutely great, so tasty and portions were big! The staff was very nice and made us feel very welcome :)

The wife and I try to eat here when in Dublin. It is a nice and sometimes quite place for dinner. You can of course alway dine upstairs, but the pub is really nice. Food is great, specials are good and the price is right. Try the roast beef. Just make sure you are hungry as the plates are big!!

We stopped there on a rainy night, was busy, decided to sit at the bar. Bartender was great, really good service, food was good, lively conversation. Asked about the name of the place and briefly, was named after Nancy who served beer to injured soldiers at the hospital near Phoenix Park, and there was just a little window she passed... More

We ate dinner in the upstairs restaurant section away from the bar. The food was good and there were lots of details in the woodwork and ambiance that kept my attention while we visited. The neighborhood is nice too.

What a find! I came across the Nancy Hands pub whilst staying at the nearby Ashling Hotel (rate that very highly too). The pub is a four minute walk (across the Liffey) from Heuston Station where the Airlink bus from Dublin Airport terminates. This is also the boarding point for the Luis Line (Red) tram, with frequent services to Dublin... More

Just down the road (200 yards) from our hotel. Lovely atmospheric pub with excellent food and spot-on service. So good we ate there twice.

We found the Nancy Hands by accident on the way to the zoo and went back at night to sample the food. The table d'hote menu is excellent and relatively inexpensive. The steak was done to perfection and there is something truly delectable in those mashed potatoes. Great value with friendly, welcoming staff who all have a good sense of... More
